    •  You can add Bush to the list too. (0+ / 0-)

      Along with a whole host of other GOP chickenhawks.

      You don't have to convince me.  I'm not saying that Obama's lack of service disqualifies him or makes him any less patriotic.  I am saying that this is the cudgel that the GOP will use against him.  The smart thing would be to diffuse it in advance with a VP like Clark or Webb.  In lieu of that, he needs to trend lightly when going toe-to-toe on veteran issues with a guy who spent a couple years in a tiger cage.
